Policy Statement

This policy is written to explain the home’s approach to those occasions when a resident spends periods away from the home, eg on holiday, and needs to continue taking prescribed medication that would otherwise be administered by the home’s staff. It is not intended to cover times when the person has been admitted to hospital, where a separate policy will apply.

This organisation will act at all times in compliance with relevant legislation and best practice guidance relating to the management and administration of medication in adult social care, including:

  • The Medicines Act 1968
